This article was (very well) written by Queen’s University engineering student Chris Kitchen. He makes an interesting argument for why Canadian oil reserves play an important role in climate change and other issues in our current political debate.
I am impressed by the insight of this young, fourth year university student. Too bad (most of) our political leaders vying for the job of prime minister don’t have similar insightful convictions. I wonder if any of them have read this. Judging by the same mudslinging rhetoric in the news every night, I doubt it.
We could definitely use more of this proactive, scientific thinking and reasoning to pull Canada’s sinking economy out of the mess we find ourselves in.
